UPDATE: Oprah and Snapfish give you free photo book of your kid's art
UPDATE: Yes, the Snapfish and Oprah book deal is still a good one, I think. But because of the overwhelming response, Snapfish ran into lots of glitches over the weekend. The coupon that was supposed to show up in your account for the free custom photo book didn't actually appear for some customers (myself included). So I placed my order anyway on Sunday and sent an email to seek a refund. But to see how long the wait is on the phone, I called Monday to make sure they were going to give my refund. After 30 minutes, I did get someone on the line and everything was cleared. But what a headache. I'm pretty sure Oprah would not like this!
I did talk to a couple of friends who did get the coupon so it worked for some but not for others. If you do want to call to get the coupon put back into your account before you place the order, the number is toll free 1-800-634-4500. Hours are 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. EST Monday-Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST Saturday and Sunday. Remember, though, that this is not for requesting the coupon -- that deal is over. The original coupon request had to be in by Nov. 14.
Now the good news: If you did get the coupon and still want to get the book, the deadline to order has been extended to Saturday, Nov. 22. But again, because of the overwhelming response, look for you book in about two to three weeks.
As a part of Oprah's Clean Up Your Messy House Tour, the talk diva and some organizing experts talked about the overwhelming job of keeping up with all the "art" our kids bring home. To help get that organized, Oprah and Snapfish have teamed up to give a free 20-page 8 x 11 custom cover photo book to anyone out there for free! That's a $30 savings!
Here's what you do: You sign up here or log into your existing account to receive the coupon. Then take digital photos of your kids artwork and upload them to Snapfish.com. They then will send back a bound book of the artwork and you can decide if you want to keep the original or let it fly over to Grandma's house. Just sharing the love, that's all!
Now here's the fine print. You gotta act fast because the coupon disperal ends at 11:59 p.m. FRIDAY, NOV. 14! Then you have to redeem the coupon by 11:59 p.m. SUNDAY, Nov. 16. You'll still have to pay for shipping and handling and any additional pages you might want. Check here for all the details.
Don't you feel like you're in her audience for one of her favorite things shows when she gives away all the free stuff? Thanks, Oprah!
